Speaking to Arsenal TV online today, Arsene Wenger gave the latest update on the squad ahead of the Wigan game.
After last night’s game, there are some uncertainties on the availability of Denilson and Chamakh for Wigan. Both of them picked up minor knocks in the game against Leeds but it’s too early to say if they will be available or not.
The manager said that overall there are no new injuries as both of them are ‘small doubts’. According to Wenger, Chamakh looked better even today after picking up a minor knock to his knee while Denilson will be checked tomorrow to see how he responds to the knock on his hip.
As for the other injured players, they are still not yet ready to be back.
Wenger confirmed that Diaby and Squillaci are not far away but won’t be ready at the weekend. A week is what Wenger gave for their return.
As for Fabianski, Wenger said that they will have to remain patient as his shoulder still gives him pain.
Wenger, while speaking to TV online said:
“We have some uncertainty about Chamakh and Denilson. Denilson has been hit on the hip and we will see how he responds tomorrow morning. Chamakh today looks good so overall I don’t think we have lost anybody last night. They are small doubts.
Diaby and Squillaci are not far away but they will not be completely ready for the weekend. They will be one week I think.
Fabianski is still out unfortunately with his shoulder. It still gives him pain and we have to be patient about that.”
